Year in Review: 2016

Was going to go with "one interminable scream," but the typography was disappointing.

So instead here is a record of my increasing reliance on Netflix escapism and kittens.

Congrats on surviving the year, folks. It's been...memorable.

Still reeling in horror from recent events, but the 140-characters-or-less medium has proven a less daunting one to tackle.

Happy caloric escapism to all!

Ginger (~1999 to August 24, 2016)

Her early years passed amongst New York City's criminal element, Ginger spent the next twelve basking in a decidedly more tranquil life, the only vestige of her gritty background a strident, weaponized meow. She was a world-class nestler and top-notch napper, but would spring into action at the merest hint of a measuring tape, her chase toy of choice (runner up: rulers). A devotee of dairy products, Ginger had recently been introduced to spray whipped cream and thoroughly approved. We shared a fondness for croissants.

Across three states and nine homes, this intrepid feline selflessly assessed the quality of my beds, expertly trained me to indulge her very particular water-drinking preferences, warmed my lap, and calmly tolerated my shenanigans.

Ginger was as devoted and adoring a companion as they come. She will be deeply missed.
